I have used Logos Bible software for years. I absolutely love it. I can’t say enough good about it. This powerful digital library system is like having your own personal librarian, who, at the touch of a button, will quickly look up and organize all of the resources and information you’ll ever need for comprehensive Bible study.
I use the Inductive Bible study methods to mark my Bible for about 20 years (free guide here). When I started Bible Journaling Digitally in Photoshop Elements I draged and dropped the symbols in digitally, which worked great. Slowing down and adding icons is terrific way to study and think (especially in the fast paced world). But now I found out I can add the symbols directly in Logos!! Excited is understating how I feel. THRILLED is closer. I just did James 1 this morning.
Then I added Bible Journaling pretties. See BibleJournaLove.com for more.
By compiling thousands of electronic resources, Logos puts a vast digital library at your fingertips. Imagine sitting down in a coffee shop to plan your essay, prayer, or sermon—and, with a click, calling up devotionals, commentaries, reference books, and much more. Logos turns your digital Bible into the resource you never knew you needed. Logos offers a full range of starter libraries, from the basic Christian Home Library to the extensive Portfolio Edition. Whatever size library you need, you can get it from Logos.
My Favorite Logos Features:
- SEARCH: Imagine having Bible study tool available all linked to each other and youcan search it just like using Google. Do smart searches—in English, Greek, and Hebrew—within your Bible. Logos 6 knows what words mean and how they’re used. Search the Bible by part or clause, and Logos brings back exactly what you’re looking for.
